Another dot in the blogosphere?

Off the shelf ed-gaming

Posted on: January 6, 2010

Here is a teacher who is attempting to integrate video games that are designed more for entertainment than for education into the curriculum. Based on his tweets and blog, I am aware that Tom Barrett does the same. I wish there were more teachers like them!

I do the same in teacher education, except this year I have one less formal opportunity to do so.

I normally facilitate a core ICT course for teacher trainees and integrate educational gaming into it over two separate semesters. This year I am facilitating it only once as I have another course on my mind and hands right now.

But as that door closes, another might open. In the middle of the year, I might be able to reach Normal-Technical in-service teachers via mobile and Web 2.0 pedagogies workshops. I might add game-based learning to the mix!
